It’s Official – Iowans Chose a New License Plate
We have a winner. Iowans voted and the Iowa Department of Transportation has just announced the City and County Reboot design was the winner.
The public voted for their favorite design through an online poll and at the Iowa DOT’s State Fair booth throughout the Fair. The City and Country Reboot design won the public vote with 113,299 of the poll’s 291,095 total votes. There was a big push late yesterday that brought Flying Our Colors to a close second with 110,352 votes. In third place was The Great Wide Open, which tallied 67,444 votes.
According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, the new plate design will be available sometime in 2018. Plates with the new designs will be issued to vehicle owners when they add or change vehicles or replace lost, stolen or damaged county standard plates.
Iowans who currently have standard plates will receive replacement plates with the new design when their current plate reaches the end of its 10-year replacement cycle. Vehicle owners who want a new plate sooner may purchase a set from their local county treasurer’s office for $5.
